HATE BILL DEFEATED!
By Rev. Ted Pike
6 Dec 07
Sen. Kennedy's hate crime amendment, approved by the U.S. House
and Senate, was stripped from the National Defense Appropriations
Act, H.R. 1585, midday Thursday. Congressional Quarterly reports
that support for the arms/hate bill bureau had so eroded in the House
that Democrats were forty votes short of passage.
This great victory confirms that massive last-minute opposition
from the evangelical and far right may well have powerfully helped
defeat it. Sens. Kennedy and Smith may attempt to revive it as stand-alone
legislation after the first of the year. But its rejection by Conference
greatly increases the likelihood that we can defeat it again - if
lovers of freedom continue to protest loudly.
